    And for the record, I didn't want to switch to the iPhone. I was having problems w/ my HTC Arrive, and Sprint wasn't doing squat to help...story for another time...My bosses were hounding me because my phone didn't work. and so I told Sprint I needed a phone that day or I'd go elsewhere and have a phone that day. So they let me leave after 91/2 yrs with them. When I went to the Veizon store they were out of Trophies, so even tho I've always been anti-Apple and Ant-iPhone, I figured, let's give it a whirl til they get some more Trophies in stock, I have 14 days. Not realizing I was in an"authorized dealer" store and not corporate. They apparently have a different return policy on iPhones, or at least this one did. So, all-sales-are-final and 3 days later, I'm stuck w/ The iPhone. I soooooo miss my Windows Phone...after 3 days. The iPhone IS sleek, pretty, fluid, fast, yada-yada-yada...but after a day, it's sooooooooooooo boorrrrrrrrrriiiinnnnnnggggg.

    you should sell it on the interwebz and then buy a Trophy. the nice thing with Apple products is that they have great resale value. so sell it for a little less than full price and then buy a Trophy. you might even make some cash on the side. :D
